Asian Industrial Development from the Perspective of the Motorcycle Industry
This paper discusses the diversity of industrial development among Asian countries that emerges through an investigation of the motorcycle industry despite its uniform industrial attributes. The paper then explores factors that generate diversity, focusing attention on the differences in knowledge-based assets accumulated in each country. It finds that diversity is brought about through the differences in domestic industrial resources and the capabilities of local firms. The analysis underscores each countryâ€™s intrinsic logic in industrial development, contrary to the current trend of stressing assimilation through the global production networks of multinational corporations.
